            We produced feathering props for many years and earned a reputation for reliability, long life and ease of operation. They were discontinued about 12 years ago because of high production costs. Our engineers spent a year looking for ways to reduce the cost without sacrificing quality and were successful!!

          You can now buy a feathering propeller for less than you would expect to pay for a folding propeller.
